Our company

Following  extensive research on technology and regulatory challenges, we identified an opportunity for a project in Eastern Canada, close to market demand.

Our project

Samonix first wants to set up an aquaculture industry in western Quebec. The first initiative is to build a land-based aquaculture farm of more than 12,000 metric tons annually in the Pontiac in the Outaouais. Its purpose is to supply fresh salmon to the  main markets of Quebec and Ontario, as well as part of the eastern United States. The proposed facilities will use tank culture technology with recirculation and water treatment (RAS Systems).

Our mission

Our mission consists in contributing sustainably to the regional economy and food self-sufficiency. We aim to offer an unparalleled quality product, with as little contact as possible with ecosystems and the environment. Salmon is raised without antibiotics, pesticides, hormones, and microplastics.  Our goal is to create an eco-responsible and sustainable business.

Our location

Samonix has chosen this privileged site to establish its land-based aquaculture farm. Nestled in the heart of pristine nature, this facility promises not only to provide high-quality products but also to respect the environment through the use of cutting-edge water treatment technologies. In this enchanting setting, the company is committed to cultivating salmon with care, to the delight of local and international markets nearby.

Our values

Quality

We want to offer consumers a quality product. Salmon is an excellent source of protein, vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants.

Sustainability

Discharge control and recirculation reduce the risk to neighbouring species. Local sourcing also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, a step in the right direction for the environment.

Innovation

Our project is innovative in many aspects. We use a recirculation technology with a breeding approach developed in recent years. In addition, we wish to be the largest producer of Atlantic salmon in land-based aquaculture in Eastern Canada.

Notre projet

Samonix désire construire une ferme aquacole terrestre de 5 000 à 15 000 tonnes métriques annuelles dans le Pontiac en Outaouais afin d’approvisionner les principaux marchés du Québec, de l’Ontario et une partie de l’est des États-Unis en saumon frais. Les installations envisagées utiliseront une technologie d’élevage en bassin avec recirculation (et traitement) de l’eau à plus de 99% (Systèmes RAS).

The difference
lies in Detail

Fishery can mean either the enterprise of raising or harvesting fish and other aquatic life; or more commonly, the site where such enterprise takes place. Commercial fisheries include wild fisheries and fish farms, both in freshwater bodies and the oceans .
About 500 million people worldwide are economically dependent on fisheries. 171 million tonnes of fish were produced in 2021, but overfishing is an increasing problem, causing declines in some populations.

Project Status:

We are currently in the technological development phase.

FAQ:

The principle of RAS is to recirculate the same water needed by using very sophisticated filtration and denitrification systems. This allows for maintaining high-quality breeding water, essential for the well-being of the salmon, while greatly limiting discharges. It is a very environmentally friendly approach that avoids the use of antibiotics and pesticides. The main drawback is the cost of implementation – requiring the construction of large ponds in a massive building. 

It is important to note that today, all Atlantic salmon sold to consumers come from farms.  The technology used by Samonix guarantees a better control of the environment and the cleanliness of the water. Our salmon benefit from an optimal nutrition adapted to their needs. Raised without antibiotics, hormones, pesticides and microplastics, they develop in ideal conditions. The RAS technology allows us to offer a fresh salmon of superior quality than what is currently on the market.

Current methods involve raising salmon in net cages directly in the sea. RAS technology allows for isolating the fish from their wild habitat, enabling 100% control over all elements of their life cycle without ever coming into contact with external ecosystems.
